We still feel so blessed to be sitting in such a gorgeous paradise in the middle of January. Cheers! We don’t get tired of these views. Of sunshine, palm trees, and blue water. Including the Pelican, although he is not allowed to stay long on Journey. The weather can be days when the seas are calm and flat and then there are days like this when the winds just rip across the bay and the waves are relentlessly beating the rocks. The kite surfers love these days but those of us with boats don’t much care for the relentless beating.
We met Mario on the dock after he got his new boat. He decided to leave the busy city of Playa Del Carmen for living on a boat here in Puerto Aventuras and exploring a new type of life. Mario is from Italy but has lived in Mexico for 20 years, we finally made it down to the beach area of Playa del Carmen got a look at the beach, and ate at this restaurant, Don Mario. The Pizza was perfect with a yummy glass of wine. The best part was the view from our table of the dog keeping watch over the street. Yes, Playa Del Carmen is a busy city.
The guys in our group along with Dee dove into painting Landon and Robin’s panga the Joker and giving her a new paint job and bottom paint. These video shows how she began to take on a new look and we are all excited to see her back on the water.
In late January, A new neighbor next to us was a very large catamaran. This boat has 4 owners and a great captain named, Gonzalez. We were able to exchange some information with each other as he was headed up to Key West and Florida for his next stop for one of the owners, and then on into the Caribbean. He doesn’t plan to be back to Mexico for over a year. Safe Travels.
On days when the water is clear and the wind is not blowing you can see so much happening below the surface like catching sight of this eagle ray. This ray is beautiful and just spectacular as it glides through the water. This is a must see in the video.
Dee and I tagged along on a fishing trip on the Solution and enjoyed the day and watched Danny catch this massive Amber Jack. This fish was too big and full of worms so no eating this one. But I did see a shark in the grass line feeding but of course no camera nearby. Next, it was time for a different adventure on the water, out on Journey. It was just a beautiful day and Danny of course had a line in the water and this time the score was a mahi mahi. The blue water was so beautiful and it was time to just float and swim. Thanks, Matt for these great shots from the water. I believe everyone had a great time! The trip back in was nice and a perfect day was wrapped up. Next stop Latitudes for some fresh Mahi Mahi and happy hour margaritas.
Mid-February brought changes for Dee and I as we found an empty lot we could move Journey to we will miss being so close to everything but will enjoy the quiet peacefulness of being away from all the people constantly walking by us each and every day. Can you spot Journey in her new spot in the video?
